Oar out of the oarlock, oar rights installed backwards, inappropriate PFD for whitewater and hand placement on the oars like he's recovering from a near mishap on Class I - II water.

The only thing that could make the photo more absurd would be if one of the guys in the boat behind him was raising a frosty one to the camera...

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
